You'll just have to check the labelling or dig into the company to find out if the oil has been buggered with. If it hasn't, their going to be suprised by a bunch of new orders!

Unfortunately, it's not the process, as the corn itself which is excluded from most of the paleo/primal diets. Even sweet corn-on-the-cob is an artificially bred product and most modern strains are so far away from their origins that they're... (more)
